Washington, D.C. – The Brookings Institution, a renowned public policy research organization, launched a redesigned website brookings.edu to make it easier for people around the world to access high-quality, independent research and analysis on pressing global issues.
Developed in partnership with Teal Media, the new brookings.edu uses proprietary features and an enhanced interface to foster engagement with the Institution’s many audiences to ensure they can find the information they need to understand policy challenges and identify smart solutions.
Amy Liu, interim president of the Brookings Institution, expressed her enthusiasm about the launch, stating, “At Brookings, we aim to empower people, communities, and decisionmakers to take informed action on pressing challenges confronting society today. With this enhanced website, we are pleased to be able to make our wide range of trends analyses, original insights, and policy recommendations more user-friendly and accessible to our global audience. This website represents the institution’s steadfast commitment to providing rigorous research and innovative ideas to make the world a better place.”
Originally launched in 1995, brookings.edu has evolved over the years to meet the changing needs of its users. It now serves as a premiere resource for policymakers, journalists, philanthropists, academics, and industry and community leaders at local, national, and global levels, with over 55 million visitors annually.
Key features of the new website include a robust search function, enabling visitors to explore the latest Brookings research, analysis, and recommendations by topic or expert. Visitors can delve into reports, policy briefs, podcasts, videos, and testimony, and easily subscribe to newsletters, explore job and internship openings, and donate to support the Brookings Institution’s work. The new website is optimized for desktops and mobile devices.
“Millions of people turn to the Brookings website each year for trusted information, with increasing numbers of our visitors under the age of 34. With this new website, we aimed to create a new kind of digital engagement platform to make sure people can engage with us on vital policy matters and access the resources and tools they need,” added Andrea Risotto, Chief Communications Officer at Brookings.
